Earlier in the week, I met up with Jonathan & Val in Orleans for a maternity shoot after they won a contest I ran on Instagram.  (People do win those things!)

Typically, I ask my clients to bring props and to look around on Google or Pinterest for things they’re interested in.  It always helps to know what people have in mind when shooting portraits.  Val came prepared with printouts, and we were able to snag some great shots from the props she brought along!

The light was a little higher than I usually aim for, but we were able to get some great shots anyway.  The surrounding foliage provided some great shade, and Val was game for a small hike through the woods for a few different backgrounds.

Overall, it was a great session!  Enjoy the images, and don’t hesitate to reach out if you’ve got questions, feedback, or to book a session!
